In a startling revelation made by ESPN, it has been claimed that Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr was threatened by Spanish television programme El Chiringuito TV to not publish the video in which he spoke out against racism.

Vinicius was subjected to racist slur by Spanish agent Pedro Bravo while appearing on El Chiringuito, as he criticised the Brazilian’s style of play and way of celebrating goals by dancing, while also making more xenophobic comments.

Following the incident, Vinicius received a huge wave of support from the entire footballing community. The Brazilian international himself took to his social media to issue a statement on the matter after Real Madrid had threatened legal action against those involved in the incident.

During this, it is now being claimed that El Chiringuito tried to intimidate Vinicius to not go public with his video as it would portray their TV programme as racist. The threats were sent to his entourage through messages and calls from the members of the programme.

Despite their attempts at intimidation, Vinicius went ahead with his statement, in which he denounced the statements made by Pedro Bravo, while also taking a stance against racism.

Things, however, did not stop at that, as the Real Madrid winger was subjected to more abuse at the Civitas Metropolitano ahead of and during the derby against Atletico on Sunday night.

Los Rojiblancos have issued a belated statement on the matter condemning those involved and confirming that those individuals will be banned from the club.
